As many as 100,000 youth under the age of 18 are released from juvenile correctional facilities every year. These young people often return to their communities with complex needs, such as physical and behavioral health issues and barriers to education and employment. This grant program will provide funding to state and local government agencies and federally recognized Indian Tribes to implement evidence-based supervision strategies to improve outcomes for juveniles under community supervision.
